Darbar Festival 2019

23 - 26 November 2019

In a programme spanning the Barbican and Sadler’s Wells, Darbar Festival brings the very best of classical Indian music and dance to London.

For the third year running, Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Akram Khan returns to Darbar Festival to curate a programme of dance and music performances and workshops.

Previous years have seen the likes of “Indian-dance royalty” (Financial Times) Sujata Mohapatra and Aditi Mangaldas perform on the main stage.
